Garden Room Gallery

Call for proposals 2018-19 season

We are selecting our next season of exhibitions for this small gallery on the Dartington estate in South Devon (UK). The deadline for proposals is 22.00 BST on Sunday May 20 with the season opening in September. We have only one primary criterion: as an organisation (working in partnership with Dartington) we have a particular interest in contemporary art that has a connection to the planet on which we all live, has in interest in or engagement with the natural world, or otherwise has a role to play in the conversation about how we live our lives.

How to find us

Find your way to Dartington Hall

Park in the main car park (there is a small charge). Then walk DOWN the hill until you see the large blue sign for SPACE. Walk towards the buildings at the end and find us upstairs. There are signs in main reception directing you to the gallery.

If you have a blue badge, there are three parking bays available outside SPACE. They are quite often in use, so if you’d like us to reserve one for you please ring us on 07968 208583, or email us.  Although the gallery is on the first floor, the building is fully wheelchair accessible.
